Crosley Hot Shot?
Voigt Crosley Special. It's an H-Mod with a Crosley engine.
I saw this Crosley powered bike at a car show in Flagstaff last Sept. Lots of detail in this build, he still needed to attach a transmission to the flywheel. He claimed it put out 29 HP, + 2 over stock!!!!
This is Steve Lansing driving his Crosley at Bridgehampton in 1951. (He came in 14th.)
I do not, Mike Zenor did post a bunch of shots years ago.
I know they're small & easy to overlook, but still : "BUMP"!! LOL
A color pencil I did years ago.
Guess this is mild but really a hot rod in the true sense of the word. A friend just finished this 39 Crosley, the body was shortened 14 inches when he got it, removed the 2 cylinder air cooled motor and installed a hopped up 51 Crosley drive train.
Here's some more of my crosley powered trike

If anyone is interested,I have a bunch of Crosley stuff..all stock,no speed parts,,I am 81 and know I'll never get around to them all..P M me I;ll sell cheap......
Any more pictures of the Blue Goose? My favorite at Indy Goodguys years ago. Want to see in action, like to draw a pic of it in the future.
There was a cam cover, a fan, a speedometer, & an instrument cluster for a Crosley at one of the stalls at the ARCO Swap in Sacramento on 4/18, so the parts are still out there!
Ive seen a few parts here in bama lately too. They just pulled one out of the woods by my house, and took it to the crusher before I could save it. It was a slide back roof convertable.
Little things do matter : BUMP!
Aw, come on youse guys; how 'bout some updates??
The smiling gentleman below was the original builder of that car...and my uncle. He and his car are responsible for my desire to build a car. Unfortunately it took 50-some years for me to start that project.
Neet little car..I always that that would be a fun class to race..Back of my head says I should build a crosley blocked v8...Some day......
Here is a Crosley powered sprint car project I saw at the Miller Meet a few years ago.
Look on the far left of the picture...looks like a Crosley Hotshot, Pasadena Freeway, early '50s
"49" sorry Iv been away for a while
Found this little Sweetheart on my lunch break today!
My dad drove that car as well, some time the car went from hemi to olds
I built this model many moons ago.
Rusty that's a great model! Yes I really like Crosleys. I spotted this one from the street, on a recent road trip.
The model is very close to John Batto's Crosley altered.
